    About Avast 4 Pro false Alarms!

    There have been writings about Avast 4 false Alarms! I have “so called” false Alarm in my downloads with Avast 4 Pro!

    I downloaded a mouse driver from Genius Power Scroll Optical mouse. Avast 4 Pro said, that there was a trojan in it! Of course I checked that with KAV 4.0.9, DrWeb 4.29b, RAV 8.6 and F-Secure 5.40 (= finnish program). After that, my backups told there were nothing to be scared about.

    After opening that archived file, there were 3 buttons and about 15 o_Oo_Oo_O:s. So I couldn’t understand what to do with it.

    It took some time, when I understood, that Avast 4 (from Chech’s Rebublic), is so clever, that it is capable to understand it’s neighbour, Hungarians, really origin. We Finns belongs to the same language family, which is, by the way, older than that language what I am writing about just now! When I had the finnish language wersion of winXP Home, the only program which could recognize that there was jargon in that archived file, was from the very near of our relatives!

    There are some, which may call it as excellent culture knowledge!
